Are you ready?
If a disaster were to occur today, would you know what to do? Would you be ready?
Disaster preparedness is a key element in helping ensure the safety and well-being of
you and your family in the event of a disaster. During the month of June, take the
time to assess whether you and your family are prepared.
Be informed. Find out what disasters are most likely to happen in your area and the
history of their occurrence. Check to see if your city/county has an emergency prepar-
edness website. Local emergency management offices can help you identify the po-
tential hazards and make recommendations for you and your family. Become familiar
with different ways to reach evacuation routes and know where emergency facilities
are located. Incorporate what you learn into your familys emergency plan.
Have a plan. Talk with your family about different disasters and what action to take
for each of them. Establish a family communication plan and designate a meeting
place. You should also select one or two out-of-state contacts with whom you can
check in and make contact cards with important phone numbers for everyone.
Build a kit. Having a disaster supply kit for your home and vehicle will permit you to
evacuate more quickly and help ensure that you and your family can meet your basic
needs. Review both www.Ready.Navy.mil and www.Ready.gov, to find out what
supplies you should have in your kit. You will be able to find emergency kit shopping
lists, as well as other useful information. Everyone should know what to do, where to
go and what to take in the event of an emergency. Preparedness is your duty and re-
sponsibility. The time and effort you and your family invest in planning will make a
difference in your ability to handle any potential emergency situation and will help all

The month of June is a time of reflection here at the Fleet and Family Support Center. A time to
reflect on good times, crowning achievements, and constant changes.
One thing that has remained a constant is our Site Director, Mr. William Baker (Bill) He has
been our cheerleader, motivator, shoulder to cry on, and quite often a sounding board for various

Through it all he has shown us a firm, fair and consistent approach to situations, and reminded
us that at the end of the day you only have to look in the mirror and say you did the best job you
He has been a very good friend to all of us here at the Center, and it is us, that will miss him the
After 40 years of faithful Federal service Mr. Baker will retire 30JUN14
